Subject: Emergency Daycare License and Home Daycare Resource Links
On Friday March 20, 2020 The Governor’s executive order (EO) shut down day care centers. These entities can apply for an emergency day care license under the emergency rules that DCFS posted on Friday March 20, 2020. These can be accessed at (https://www2.illinois.gov/dcfs/aboutus/notices/Documents/rules_407.pdf). These emergency day care centers can provide care to those individuals who are authorized to work under the EO. Day care homes (as opposed to centers) may continue to operate (without a license from DCFS) with up to 6 children.
